Studio MDHR has announced that the first set of Cuphead DLC, the smartly named The Delicious Last Course, has been delayed to 2021.

The Delicious Last Course downloadable content – which sees Cuphead and his erstwhile friend Mugman joined by a new character, Ms. Chalice – take on a whole new island, brimming with dastardly cartoon threats.

The DLC was first announced way back in June 2018, with a tentative 2019 release date attached. But, wanting to achieve “the meticulous level of care and quality we always strive for” without resorting to crunch, Studio MDHR delayed the game into 2020. Now, thanks to the Covid-19 crisis, it has been pushed back once again.

“In true Studio MDHR fashion, we aren’t content for this final chapter to be anything less than our best work,” said the studio in a tweet. “Throughout development, we’ve challenged ourselves to put everything … Read the rest

Beyond Light has the feel of a turning point. In a long-running living game with many expansions and seasons to its name, Destiny 2 is always changing, but this installment feels different. The past and future of the franchise rotate around this release, which clears away much of the old and sets the stage for new story and gameplay beats. Like a tree that needs to get pruned back to allow for healthy growth, it also means that Beyond Light’s release leaves the game looking especially barren. Even as I’m excited to discover new powers and activities, the breadth of the overall experience has been … Read the rest

If all the features of the new consoles worked as advertised, that would be great, thanks.

I press the PS Button on my DualSense controller. It beeps, but nothing appears on my TV. The lights on the DualSense pulse a bit and then nothing. I press the button again. Nothing. The PS5 has no signs of life so I press the power button on the console itself. Nothing. Fearing the worst I press it again, and the machine is jolted awake. But I’m greeted, as expected, by the rebuilding database screen, its low resolution rubbing salt into the wound.

This issue would be relatively fine if it had just happened once, but it’s been a common occurrence over the last few weeks. It’s not just this problem, which seems to stem from putting the system into rest mode – I’ve had hard crashes out of Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Bugsnax, and … Read the rest

This is impressive stuff. Call of Duty Black Ops: Cold War manages the cross-gen transition gracefully, delivering excellent performance whether you’re gaming on PS5 or Xbox Series consoles. The premium machines also benefit from two key features: 120Hz and ray traced shadows, both of which are transformative to the experience. Microsoft’s pint-sized new console – the Series S – is also impressive enough, but appears to lack the signature next-gen features its more expensive counterparts deliver.

Let’s kick off by digging into the features that separate Series X and PS5 from all of the other versions. That stars with ray traced shadows, which – as the video below demonstrates – replace the baked shadow maps enjoyed in the other versions of the game. In terms of overall effectiveness, RT shadows are often overlooked, but the effect in Cold War is exceptional, almost as if the game’s art designs are built … Read the rest

Valve is giving greater support to the PS5 DualSense gamepad.

The number of people playing games on Steam with a controller has doubled in the last two years.

That’s according to Valve, who wrote in a blog post about its support for the newly-launched PlayStation 5’s DualSense gamepad that using a controller was an increasingly popular way of playing games on the PC platform.

Historically, PC users have preferred mouse and keyboard over controller, namely for the sake of accuracy but also because it’s often the easiest way of navigating complex games. Even those who did turn to gamepads often used the the Xbox One or Xbox 360 controllers, but PlayStation inputs have also seen an increase in popularity. Valve says that in the last two years, the percentage of those players using PlayStation controllers has risen from 10.9% to 21.6%.

“In the past two years, the number of daily … Read the rest
